Bitdefender Anti-Virus Engine Incorporated in SpamTitan v7.00

A new version of TitanHQ’s cloud-based anti-spam service and anti-spam software was released on March 5, 2018. SpamTitan version 7.00 includes patches for recently identified vulnerabilities in the ClamAV antivirus engine and a change to the primary AV engine used by the solution.

The primary anti-virus engine of SpamTitan version 7.00 is provided by the Romanian firm Bitdefender. Bitdefender is an award-winning antivirus engine that provides exceptional email protection against malware, viruses, and ransomware. Combined with the secondary AV engine – ClamAV – users benefit from excellent protection against email-based malware and ransomware attacks. The dual AV engines ensure malicious software is not delivered to end users’ inboxes via email attachments.

The change to Bitdefender was a natural choice and TitanHQ is planning to further its strategic relationship with the Romanian cybersecurity firm over the coming weeks and months. The change to the primary AV engine will be unnoticeable to current users, who will continue to be protected from malicious threats.

The update to the latest version will not happen automatically. Customers who have ‘prefetch of system updates’ enabled on their SpamTitan installations will be able to see the latest version in their list of available updates and can manually trigger the update to the new version. Customers who do not have that option enabled need to “check for updates” via their user interface.

Customers have been advised to read the documentation accompanying the latest version prior to installation as it includes important information on how the update should be applied. TitanHQ explains that it is not possible to update from v4 or v5 of the platform to SpamTitan version 7.00 without first installing version 6 of the platform.

Customers should note that the update must be performed before May 1, 2018 to ensure continued protection, as support for the Kaspersky AV engine – used in all versions of SpamTitan prior to v7 – will cease on that date. TitanHQ has also informed customers that support for v4 and v5 of SpamTitan will also stop on May 1, 2018.

SpamTitan v7.00 includes patches for the following vulnerabilities: CVE-2017-12374, CVE-2017-12375, CVE-2017-12376, CVE-2017-12377, CVE-2017-12379, CVE-2017-12380. All of those vulnerabilities exist in ClamAV. The latest version also improves protection against DoS attacks and should be applied as soon as possible. The update will take approximately 10-20 minutes to complete.

SpamTitan Attracts Top Marks on Business Software Review Site

Businesses have to deal with thousands of spam emails each day. Each employee may spend just a few minutes each day dealing with spam emails, but that time could be much better spent on other tasks. Multiply those minutes by the number of employees and it adds up to a significant loss of productivity.

At best, spam email is a nuisance and a drain on productivity. But it is not just nuisance emails that arrive in inboxes. Businesses face a barrage of phishing emails, and malware and ransomware are usually delivered via email.

All it takes is for one employee to be fooled by a malicious email for a network to be compromised, credentials to be revealed, and for files to be encrypted by ransomware. The cost of dealing with those attacks can be considerable.

The solution is to deploy an advanced spam filter that will scan all incoming messages for spam signatures, check email attachments for malware, and assess embedded hyperlinks that would otherwise direct employees to phishing websites and exploit kits. Spam and malicious emails are then quarantined, while genuine emails are delivered without delay.

SpamTitan Attracts Top Marks from Users

To help businesses fend off spam email and ransomware attacks, TitanHQ developed SpamTitan. SpamTitan anti-spam software subjects all incoming emails to a Bayesian analysis. Emails are analyzed for spam signatures and the system ‘learns’ from new spam email campaigns ensuring it remains up to date and copes with new spamming tactics.

Greylisting is used as an additional spam control – Requests are made for suspect messages to be resent. Since spam servers are busy, the delay in messages being resent helps to identify and block more spam messages. These and other controls ensure SpamTitan blocks more than 99.9% of spam email, and ensure a false positive rate of less than 0.03%.

While many spam solutions are difficult to implement and troublesome to maintain, SpamTitan can be configured in minutes and has a low management overhead.

SpamTitan has also been attracting top reviews from users, in particular for ease of implementation and use, high spam capture rates, low false positives and for TitanHQ’s industry-leading customer service.

On the business software review website Capterra, SpamTitan has been awarded 4.5/5 points overall and has received top marks for technical support and customer service.

Some of the positive comments from users of SpamTitan are listed below:

“I like that once you have configured it, you basically forget about it. It just works seamlessly and you don’t worry about it.”

“It has been great stopping emails that bring spam or ransomware. We used to get hundreds of bad emails and now we don’t.”

“The 100% uptime, ease of use, flexibility, customization options, seamless updates, clustering, and support folks who are easy to work with.”

“Wonderful product that I will recommend to every network/systems administrator.”

“It has taken so much workload off of our servers and IT staff. We still run all our security software and best practices but our AV software has barely caught anything with SpamTitan catching all the bad guys. “

Benefits of SpamTitan

SpamTitan is costs as little as $17 a month for 10 users and the solution requires no software downloads or hardware purchases. Setup takes just a few minutes and once it is up and running, there is next to no maintenance.

If you already have a spam solution in place and it is labor-intensive and complicated to use, you want to cut costs, or your solution has too many false positives and lets too much spam email through its filters, it is time to make a change.

If you have yet to implement a spam filter, claim back all the lost hours of productivity and improve your organization’s security with SpamTitan.

Gold Star SpamTitan Review in Recent Spam Filter Tests

New SpamTitan Review

Spam Filter Reviews, a website providing reviews of spam filtering solutions, has awarded TitanHQ’s SpamTitan with a glowing 4.9 gold star rating. The new SpamTitan review saw the product attract marks of 4.9/5 for both functionality and real-time emulation.

Each spam filtering product reviewed on the site is assessed on 18 different elements, with SpamTitan scoring highly on 16/18 of those elements.

The reviewers were particularly impressed with the ability to easily adjust scam scoring on all incoming emails, which allowed the filtering level to be fine-tuned to make spam filtering more aggressive or more lenient.

Another major plus was the ease at which quarantined messages can be checked. With any spam filtering solution, there will be false positives from time to time. Virus Bulletin reviews have shown SpamTitan’s false positive rate is particularly low – less than 0.03%. However, when legitimate messages do trigger the spam filter, checking those messages is straightforward.

In its review of SpamTitan, Spam Filter Reviews explained the ease at which quarantined messages can be safely viewed from the admin console. Users can view simple metrics such as the message date, recipient, envelope address, and message size, but also more detailed information using one of four different tabs.

SpamTitan lets users view the full HTML message, as well as the entire SMTP protocol header. If the email is genuine, users can quickly and easily release the message for delivery and whitelist the sender’s email address to ensure future messages are always delivered.

As Spam Filter Reviews points out, the ability to view the full body of a captured message is absent from many spam filtering solutions. This feature can save admin staff valuable time.

SpamTitan also rated particularly well on reporting. SpamTitan allows users to configure an extensive range of reports, providing users with all the information they need to measure inbound mail flow metrics. Spam Filter Reviews explained that many leading spam filtering solutions do not have such extensive spam reporting functionality. The ability to configure quarantine reports to show all messages since sign up or those captured since the last scheduled report was also praised, and found to be absent in many other spam filtering solutions.

Accessing the SpamTitan console was also found to be easy, regardless of the device being used. Since the control panel is full HTML, it can be easily accessed on mobile devices, while the admin console was found to be intuitive and easy to use.

Set up was also a quick and easy process, taking just 13 minutes. “13 minutes is extremely good considering the we had a previously MX record TTL of 5 minutes, so there is a reasonable likelihood that, if the domains TTL had previously been set to a lower TTL, the set up would have been even quicker.”

The only down point was the lack of link re-writing functionality, although due to the high degree of accuracy of the spam filter, this negative was somewhat mitigated.

Spam Filter Reviews’ SpamTitan review summarized the product saying, “All in all, SpamTitan is a very stable, clean platform with many additional features which makes an admin’s life a lot easier to manage user expectations,” also explaining “It is our comparative opinion that SpamTitan’s system is extremely under-rated as it’s clean, accurate and functionality full features certainly exceed and surpass some of the most well know Products on the market today.”

Strong Growth Continues at TitanHQ with Large Influx of New Customers

It has been a busy summer for TitanHQ. The company has been working hard to improve its award-winning cybersecurity solutions to offer even greater protection from the ever-increasing range of email and web-based threats.

TitanHQ has also been expanding its customer base and now protects an increasingly diverse range of companies from email and web-based cyberattacks. The summer has seen a swathe of new enterprise clients sign up and start using TitanHQ’s suite of cybersecurity products.

Many new enterprise customers have joined the TitanHQ community over the past few months, from SMBs to large organizations with thousands of employees. While each company has a different infrastructure and requirements, all share a common goal: A need to protect their employees, networks and data from cyberattacks.

TitanHQ would like to take this opportunity to welcome its new customers from the healthcare, hospitality, education, financial services and information technology sectors, a selection of which are detailed below:

European Hospitals Group

Cyberattacks on the healthcare industry have increased considerably over the past two years, with many large healthcare organizations falling victim to malware and ransomware attacks. Many of those attacks occurred as a result of employees visiting or being redirected to websites where malware is silently downloaded. Preventing employees from accessing malicious websites is an essential, yet often overlooked, aspect of cybersecurity.

The European Hospitals Group recognized the risk of malware downloads and decided to take action. The hospital group employs 1,800 people across two locations in the city of Brussels in Belgium: St. Elisabeth in Uccle and St. Michel in Etterbeek/European Quarter. The multilingual hospital offers excellent care for patients and now has excellent protection against web-based threats with WebTitan. WebTitan is used to carefully control the websites that can be accessed by staff, blocking web-based threats and preventing inappropriate website content from being accessed via its network.

US Beef Corporation

The hospitality sector has been extensively targeted by cybercriminals over the past year. Those malicious actors have attempted to gain access to sensitive customer data, commonly doing so via malware infections on POS systems.

US Beef Corporation is best known for its highly popular chain of restaurants: Arby’s. The first Arby’s restaurant was opened by US Beef Corporation in 1969. By 1995, the popularity of the restaurant chain saw it ranked as the 20th largest franchise in the United States. New restaurants continue to be opened and now the company has broken into the top ten franchises in the United States with 350 establishments, employing 7,500 members of staff.

US Beef Corporation recognised the need to protect its network from email- based attacks and prevent staff from falling for phishing attacks. US Beef Corporation chose SpamTitan Cloud as its anti-spam solution.

TitanHQ is now protecting the inboxes of all those employees from phishing and social engineering attacks and helps to keep the company’s network free from malware and ransomware.

Burlington Edison School District

There is growing pressure on schools and higher education establishments to implement technological solutions to restrict the websites that can be accessed via their wired and wireless networks. Children need to be protected online and prevented from accessing potentially harmful website content such as pornography and images of child abuse. Web filtering is also an important element of CIPA compliance.

The Burlington-Edison School District recognises the important of technological controls over acceptable Internet usage policies, and has chosen TitanHQ’s WebTitan to prevent inappropriate content from being accessed by its 230 staff and 3,900 students across 6 schools in Skagit County, Washington.

Miway Insurance

The insurance industry stores vast quantities of sensitive data on customers – a treasure trove of information for cybercriminals. Keeping that data secure and networks protected requires a range of cybersecurity controls.

Johannesburg, South Africa based Miway Insurance is a direct short-term insurance and financial services company offering a wide range of home and business insurance products. The company employs 3,000 staff members, the majority of whom require access to the Internet at work.

To protect against web-based attacks and prevent malware and ransomware downloads, Miway insurance chose WebTitan.  WebTitan is used to block access to malicious websites where drive-by malware downloads occur and to restrict access to unacceptable website content.

TNS Group

Stamford, CT-based TNS Group is a leading provider of managed IT support services in the Tri-State area and has clients throughout the United States and beyond. The firm was looking for a solution provider that could provide a spam filtering solution that could be easily offered to its customers to protect them from email-based threats.

Through SpamTitan Cloud, TNS Group can offer its clients an advanced spam filtering service to protect against phishing and social engineering attacks, malware and ransomware and keep inboxes spam free.

All the above companies have now had their TitanHQ products deployed and are protected from email and web-based attacks. If you are looking to improve your organization’s security posture and want to ensure your networks are kept malware free, contact the TitanHQ team today to find out more about the WebTitan web filtering and SpamTitan anti-spam solutions.

Zservices Partnership Brings TitanHQ Anti-Spam Solutions for Businesses to the Middle East

TitanHQ has announced a new partnership deal with Dubai-based cybersecurity powerhouse Zservices that will see the company’s anti-spam solutions for businesses pushed out to organizations throughout the Middle East and Africa.

TitanHQ has been working in the field of email security for two decades and has developed a range of cybersecurity solutions for businesses. Zservices will be adding TitanHQ’s SpamTitan anti-spam solution to its extensive portfolio of cybersecurity solutions, filling a gap in its email security offerings.

SpamTitan is a robust and powerful anti-spam solution for businesses that offers protection from malicious emails and blocks 99.97% of spam from being delivered. The massive increase in malware and ransomware has made the use of anti-spam solutions more important that every before.

SpamTitan is already extensively used by businesses in TitanHQ’s home country of Ireland and throughout Europe and the Americas. TitanHQ’s products are now used by more than 6,500 business customers in 129 countries around the world.

The new partnership deal will be a massive boost to the company and will see its anti-spam solutions for businesses pushed out to a wide range of organizations throughout the United Arab Emirates, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, State of Qatar, State of Kuwait, Kingdom of Jordan, Kingdom of Morocco, Arab Republic of Egypt, and beyond.

Zservices to incorporate TitanHQs Anti-Spam Solutions for BusinessesAs the only cybersecurity-as-a-service in-country cloud operator in the entire Middle East region, Zservices is the perfect partner to sell TitanHQ’s anti-spam solutions for businesses. Zservices partners with some of the largest telecoms companies and national service providers in the Middle East and provides a wide range of cybersecurity services to companies in the telecoms, technology, communications, education, pharmaceutical, and retail industries throughout the Middle East and North Africa. Zservices will focus on selling the SpamTitan cloud-based anti-spam service to large enterprises and government entities throughout the region.

The partnership was announced during Enterprise Ireland’s trade mission to the UAE and KSA. Ireland’s Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade, Charlie Flanagan TD, praised the new partnership deal, which highlights the great opportunities that exist for Irish companies in the Middle East.

“As Enterprise Ireland’s trade mission will demonstrate, the opportunities for innovative Irish companies to build partnerships and increase their sales to the Middle East region are real and tangible,” said Minister Flanagan. He went on to say, “Today’s announcement by TitanHQ is a great example of what is possible for highly innovative Irish companies in this dynamic market.” Enterprise Ireland’s Executive Director Global Business Development, Kevin Sherry, said the deal is a “testament to TitanHQ’s innovation and ambition.”

All McDonalds Restaurants in the Philippines Protected by SpamTitan

McDonalds (Philippines) is the latest fast food chain to choose TitanHQ as its partner to protect employees from phishing attacks.

McDonalds operates more than 500 restaurants in the Philippines and all of those restaurants will now be protected with TitanHQ’s anti-spam solution, SpamTitan. Under the terms of the agreement, TitanHQ has been tasked with keeping employee inboxes free from email spam and protecting its network from other email-borne threats such as malware and ransomware.

Email spam has declined in recent years following the take down of large botnets by international task forces, yet the threat from phishing has never been greater. The Anti-Phishing Working Group (APWG) has recently released a report that shows phishing attacks in 2016 have spiked. In the first quarter of the year, APWG reported there were more phishing attacks “than at any other time in history”.

Phishing attacks have also become far more sophisticated, making it harder for employees to identify phishing emails. Unfortunately, all it takes is for one employee to fall for a single phishing email for a network to be compromised. Employing a robust and powerful anti-spam solution has never been more important.

SpamTitan was chosen to protect all McDonalds restaurants in the Philippines for the excellent level of protection offered, but also due to the simplicity of the solution. As McDonalds (Philippines) IT manager Ramon Rivera III explains, “SpamTitan’s best feature is that it simply works as promised with immediate results.  The product is incredibly powerful and yet simple to manage.”

The increase in phishing attacks and the rise in the use of ransomware has prompted many fast food chains to re-evaluate their cybersecurity defenses; however, it is not only employees that need to be protected.

McDonalds has recently announced that it will also be taking action to reduce the risk to customers who connect to its in-restaurant Wi-Fi networks. In order to protect minors, McDonalds will be implementing a web filtering solution to prevent users of its restaurant Wi-Fi networks from accessing pornography. All McDonalds restaurants are to be protected by a web filtering solution which will prevent inappropriate web content from being accessed by any of its customers.

McDonalds is setting an example which other fast food chains are following. After the decision to start offering family-friendly Wi-Fi was announced by McDonalds, Starbucks followed suit. The coffee shop chain is currently looking for a web filtering solution to ensure its coffee shop Wi-Fi networks are 100% family friendly.

Kaspersky anti-virus which is included in SpamTitan wins high praise in recent review.

UK PC Magazine recently reviewed Kaspersky Anti Virus 2015. The solution has recently got top ratings in tests by six independent labs. The review reported ‘Excellent antiphishing scores. Simple settings. Quick, easy install.” And Kaspersky AV is included as standard in the full range of SpamTitan email security solutions. 

From the review  “All the antivirus testing labs that I follow include Kaspersky's products in their testing, and Kaspersky earns universally high marks. ICSA Labs and West Coast Labs certify Kaspersky for malware detection and cleaning; West Coast Labs adds "Platinum Checkmark" certification. Kaspersky participated in all 12 of the most recent tests by Virus Bulletin and earned VB100 certification in 10 of them”.

SpamTitan Technologies will be releasing a new feature rich SpamTitan v6.01 in April.

Tampa, FL and Galway, Ireland – 10th March  2014.  SpamTitan Technologies  will release v6.01 in April, a feature rich release of the award winning spam filter  that offers considerable enhancements in usability, security and network management. With centralized management  and control, and flexible on-premises or cloud deployment options, SpamTitan continues to deliver incredibly  cost-effective and manageable capabilities.  SpamTitan 6.1 due to be release early April will offer businesses enhanced and even more powerful email security with additional outbound mail relaying features, improved Application controls, and multiple UI enhancements.

We're really excited here at SpamTitan Technologies," said Sean Doherty Senior Product Developer . "We've put a lot of time and effort into the creation and launch of SpamTitan 6.1 it will be so rewarding to see all that hard work come to fruition in delivering these new features to our customers." 

As part of the release of SpamTitan 6.1 in April users will see the introduction of   advanced policy based rate controls which will allow the rejection or deferral of messages based on a number of criteria further protecting the system from spammers or spam-programs (also known as "spam-bots") that send large amounts of email to the server in a small amount of time.

SpamTitan 6.1 also sees the addition of support for sender based smarthosts. Sender dependent smarthosts provide the ability to relay mail outbound from a particular domain or email address through a specific relay or smarthost. This is used to ease the management of a single mail server with aliases, security, and Internet access rather than maintaining numerous local mail servers.

Another significant feature includes increased delegated administration functions and added support for outbound IP Delivery Pools providing increased protection for an organisations IP reputation and consequently increasing spam catch rate.

"Our mission here at SpamTitan Technologies is to provide secure, reliable and affordable email security solutions to our customers," said Eddie Monaghan, Channel Manager. "We're taking a very customer-centric approach to developing SpamTitan continually implementing customer feedback and feature requests into new product releases, I think that will really shine through in our feature-rich SpamTitan 6.1. Although the company hasn't specified an official launch date yet, we expect SpamTitan 6.1 will be available to all new and existing users within the next couple of weeks."

New Research on the Risks posed by Social Media in your Business

Tampa, FL and Galway, Ireland – 4th Mar  2014.  What are some of the threats to your network security from social media and should you cut off your employee’s access to social media sites? How can SMB owners or IT guys protect the network security of the company? SpamTitan recently sponsored a survey by Osterman Research of 157 companies with an average of 1,470 employees as to perceptions about and experiences with malware.  Here we look at a couple of observations drawn from that report related to social media.

Perception of Social Media Threats

The survey shows that 14% of malware infections over the period November 2012-November 2013 were via social media and other interactive and collaborative type sites (i.e. Web 2.0).  The graph below presents the results.  As we can see, web surfing and social media are closely related in terms of the risks associated.  Web surfing is the number one method by which companies are infected, social media platforms draw victims in.

How do companies perceive the risk-versus-benefit of social media?

More than half of the companies surveyed regard the leading social media sites to be legitimate business applications.  This should mean they should not cut off access, because people might need those sites for their work. 

Among the companies that consider these sites useful some have nonetheless written guidelines or implemented technology to these block these sites include:

  • LinkedIn 21%  
  • YouTube 36%
  • Facebook 40%
  • Twitter 45%
  • Skype 47%

As you can see, in the case of LinkedIn and Skype, some of these companies have cut off their access, yet they deem them useful.  This suggests that their security policies and business policies do not line up.  Contrast that with YouTube and Twitter where companies have not cut off when they should not.

Network Security issues with Social Media in the workplace.

The major security threat with social media is the same as with spam email:  people’s curiosity, their sense of trust, and a lack of adequate security training. People have a tendency to trust these sites, because they are so well-known, considered reputable and people are not always aware of the dangers there. Plus there is the presumption to trust someone you know or someone who knows someone you know, which is how spammers gain access to post links on your wall. In security circles, the underlying issue is called "transitive trust." The average popular website links to all sorts of sites and services, with the typical home page featuring lots of third-party links. Each of those links could potentially be used by hackers for malicious intent. Your website or service is only as secure as its weakest link – literally!. Transitive-trust hacking is not new. It occurs every time a banner ad running on an innocent website ends up linking to a malicious malware laden website.

The concept was considered in Clara Shih’s book ‘The Facebook era’  although a heavily business focused book it is very readable and supported by credible research.

She writes: Consider this example of transitive trust: In trying to reach Graham, I discover that we both know Kelly. Because Kelly trusts me, and Graham trusts Kelly, Graham is more likely to “transitively” trust me if Kelly provides a warm introduction or I at least mention Kelly when reaching out to Graham. Not actually knowing me himself, Graham doesn’t trust me as much as he trusts Kelly, but … I don’t need him to trust me just yet. All I need is to get my foot in the door, and my product, service, or personality hopefully can do the rest. I just need a chance to be heard. 

Transitive trust is not a new concept; in fact, it is how human beings have been making important decisions since the dawn of civilization. The challenge in the past was about discovery. I might have had to ask a lot of people before I found someone who knew Graham well enough to provide an introduction. Social networking sites bring transparency and efficiency to discovering mutual ties.

Facebook and LinkedIn encourage you to friend or make contacts with people who you do not know directly.  They do this if you give them access to your email contacts plus they match you up with people who have a common contact with you on their site.  This way hackers can gain access to post message on your wall.  Twitter does not have this problem, as you cannot post tweets directly on someone else´s wall.  However anyone can post tweets and direct them to hashtags (#), which is where your employees would find them as they read about different topics.

LinkedIn and Twitter shorten the URLs you post there.  As they do this, they say they check for malware. For example, when they block a site, LinkedIn says: “This link has been reported as participating in malicious behaviour or abuse. Facebook also says they scan for malware, but that did not prevent the Zeus virus from infecting users on their site last year.  This virus waits until you visit a bank website and then steals your user id and password.  If that person is your company financial controller or bookkeeper, that could be a big problem.

What about security issues relating to apps?

One of the inherent weaknesses with Facebook is that the apps that you install there can have access to post links on your wall.  So they can post seemingly harmless links to infected sites without the user knowing that. Your Facebook friends will then see that link.  Facebook has too many apps to scrutinize each carefully.

Finally, whatever defences you put in place, such as blocking sites completely or selectively blocking categories of sites – these are not going to work when people are using their own devices outside your network.  They can infect their tablet or smartphone and then send that out in company mail inadvertently with a web email client or when they attach via VPN and use their mobile device to send company.

Wrapping up, one can deploy technology and improve security training to help mitigate the risks of social media.   But it is probably not a good idea to cut off access to social media, as most business, news, and culture is or has moved online and people need to be able to gain access to that for work. Security is the most important focus area for business and IT decision makers in the context of their email and web solutions. Because of the significant potential for malware and other threats to impact organizations as they enter through corporate email systems, web applications, and social media tools – and the enormous potential for financial and other damage they can cause – decision makers must focus heavily on the specific solutions that will be employed, whether these solutions will be part of an integrated suite of solutions or implemented on a best-of-breed basis, and the models that will be used to deliver them.

Windows IT Pro recommends SpamTitan

Leading on-line technology website Windows IT Pro  today announced the results of their recent SpamTitan review. The reviewer Nathan Winters found that SpamTitan was ‘ quick and easy to set up and works well with limited configuration. It has good granularity of policies and a simple UI for both administrators and end users.’.

Some of the key features of SpamTitan highlighted by the review included the granular nature by which policies can be applied. He noted that you can configure different spam- and virus-filtering settings for different email domains and systems. You can also configure outbound disclaimers for each domain and customize the notifications received when an email message breaks a policy.

The reviewer was particularly impressed with the overall spam and virus blocking abilities of SpamTitan estimating that since implementing SpamTitan less than 1 percent of mail received was spam, no false positives were reported and all viruses received were correctly filtered.

 “SpamTitan anti-spam software continues to successfully help thousands of companies worldwide to rid users’ inboxes of spam,viruses and other email threats’ said Ronan KavanaghCEO of SpamTitan Technologies.  We are delighted to be recognized by Windows IT pro, this review demonstrates our ability to consistently and effectively address today’s top security challenges for a more secure enterprise.

SpamTitan announces support for 64-bit computing.

Galway , August 24th – SpamTitan Technologies now support running SpamTitan software on  64-bit machines. This introduction is as a result of growing requests from customers who have been seeing new servers coming to market with 64-bit processors as standard  as well as virtualisation software providers like VMware supporting 64-bit across their platforms.

Running SpamTitan on a  64bit processor allows for higher performance than is achievable with 32-bit processors, it also allows users to increase the memory above the 3.5GB limit set by 32-bit processors. The SpamTitan 64bit platform is ideally suited to ISPs who wish to extend their offerings e.g. to filter outbound mails to guard against customer’s being blacklisted due to spam attacks. The SpamTitan 64 bit platform can be easily clustered with the 32bit platform allowing so it can be rolled out as customers acquire 64bit hardware or 64bit virtual infrastructure without any disruption to their current installation.

SpamTitan has been designed from the ground up to meet the complex scaleability and management needs of ISPs and other managed email service providers. More and more this means operating in a virtualized environment as ISPs seek to optimize their server usage. “SpamTitan is one of the first vendors  to provide 64-bit support for virtual computing allowing ISPs the opportunity to extend their offerings.  There are few virtualized security solutions to offer such an extensive set of tools that are specifically tailored to the needs of ISPs,” said Kavanagh.

The flexibility offered by these tools along with the product’s reliability, capacity and tracking abilities is invaluable to dynamic environments such as ISPs where customers subscribe and unsubscribe on a continuous basis. Current users of SpamTitan can download a new installation from https://www.spamtitan.com/download, once SpamTitan has been set-up successfully 64-bit support is available. Support for 64-bit computing will be extended to the WebTitan solution very shortly.

SpamTitan report that the line between personal and company data are becoming more blurred

Boston, Galway  15th June, 2010 : Failure by SMBs to adopt formal corporate social media policies, as highlighted by a survey by SpamTitan, could be storing up legal trouble for themselves in the not too distant future.

An audit of 200 SMBs worldwide revealed that while almost all allowed Internet access and some social networking applications in the workplace almost half (49 per cent) admitted they had not taken even basic steps towards a social media policy such as deploying a Web filter.

Many SMBs are now truly embracing social networking applications by adopted them within their overall marketing strategies. But it is almost impossible to track who owns this data as social data content is aggregated from site to site.

“As business embraces social networking as a way to propagate messages and build their brands the line dividing personal and company data is becoming increasingly blurred,” said Alastair Purdy, partner at Purdy FitzGerald Solicitors. “The important thing is to take steps to protect yourself or your company as much as possible in advance. Failure to do so will potentially leave the SMB sector with significant legal issues over data ownership.” 

The legal position is at a very early stage of development. This is illustrated in a recent case involving the UK arm of a US business to business media publishing group (PennWell Publishing v Ornstein (2007 EWHC) ruled that the employer owned the outlook contacts of a former journalist employee even though this list contained both work and personal contacts some of which had been brought to the company by the employee.

This blurring between work and personal becomes even more problematic in the social networking sphere.  In another recent UK case a recruitment consultant moved confidential contact information to his LinkedIn account whilst employed at Hays Recruitment. This decision was one of the first to highlight the tension between businesses encouraging employees to use social networking websites for work but then claiming that the contacts and content remain confidential information at the end of their employment. 

“We are in a new era and it is time for every company to include a corporate social media policy alongside internet usage guidelines as part of their employment terms,” said Ronan Kavanagh CEO SpamTitan Technologies ‘Without a clear internet policy many employees are unaware of the implications of sharing information on sites like Linkedin and if appropriate protection is absent many employers risk being drawn into costly legal wrangles with employees as time goes on.”

“Companies need to get to a point where they are managing employee behaviour at the individual level,” continued Kavanagh.  “Our WebTitan Internet filtering software for example is helping customers manage Internet usage in granular detail, thereby improving network security and reducing bandwidth demands in an easy-to-use, flexible and affordable way.”

WebTitan allows users to create and apply different policies to a limitless number of different workgroups.  It is possible to create flexible policies and permissions for different individuals, groups or departments within an organisation. WebTitan has a dynamic database that is updated daily with new blacklisted sites. The categorization database along with the anti-malware protection automatically update in the background at periodic intervals set by the administrator. Featuring extensive and customizable keyword filtering and comprehensive reporting, WebTitan has minimal impact on resources so as to help companies meet the challenge of staying secure in the fast changing world of social networking as cost effectively as possible.

SpamTitan ranked industry No.1 at blocking spam in Virus Bulletin’s January 2010 test

Boston, MA and Galway, Ireland – 11 January 2010: SpamTitan Technologies, the makers of powerful yet easy-to-manage spam and web filtering software, today announced that it has again outperformed the leading industry brands in the latest Virus Bulletin Spam awards. In comparative tests featuring 15 of its nearest rivals, SpamTitan combined the highest spam catch rate with a very low false positive ratio.  This result earned SpamTitan the much coveted Virus Bulletin Award along with strong independent endorsement for its highly effective and easy to use spam filtering solution.  

Virus Bulletin regularly conducts rigorous testing of anti-virus and anti-malware products to ensure the worldwide IT security industry stays equipped to protect users from the latest Internet threats.  SpamTitan, which runs as a virtual machine under VMware, was taking part in the Virus Bulletin test for only the second time.  In November 2009 SpamTitan picked up an award for the highest spam catch rate at the first attempt.  In January’s test SpamTitan again outperformed some of the industry’s best known brands including McAfee, MailMarshal, BitDefender, Fortinet and Symantec.

 “In recent years, e-mail spam has grown from a mere nuisance into a multi-million dollar business for criminals and the business consequences of not blocking spam effectively can be very damaging,” said Ronan Kavanagh CEO. “Unlike many of our rivals, SpamTitan does not require customers to choose between preventing large volumes of spam on the one hand or prescribing a low rate of false positives on the other – with SpamTitan they get both.

“We are seeing a growing number of new customers moving away from other solutions,” he added.  “These independent test results prove that our hard work to ensure our customers receive the best possible protection from spam and viruses at an extremely competitive price is paying off.”

Two new categories of spam were added to the January test: those of ‘image spam’ and ‘large spam’. The former consisted of spam emails that contained at least one embedded image while the latter consisted of spam emails comprising a body size of at least 50,000 bytes. Both types of emails are notoriously difficult to filter, especially using traditional content scanning methods.

Martijn Grooten, author of the Virus Bulletin Anti-spam comparitive review stated that:  ‘the detailed results show that neither large spam nor spam containing images are a problem for (SpamTitan) and, as there were few false positives it earns a Virus Bulletin Spam award with the second highest final score’.

SpamTitan wins Gold in Virus Bulletin Anti-spam awards

SpamTitan has achieved a Gold award on its first time to participate in the Virus Bulletin Anti-Spam Test. The Virus Bulletin is an independent global publication specific to the field of viruses and related malware. SpamTitan is the first anti-spam solution that runs on a virtual machine to take part in the Virus Bulletin test – demonstrating that SpamTitan is both an innovative and high quality product.

Virus Bulletin’s Anti-spam Test Director Martijn Grooten said in relation to SpamTitan  “I was particularly charmed by the simple, yet accurate explanations of the various anti-spam rules.  The fact that this approach worked well to block spam can be seen from the spam catch rate – which was among the highest in this test.  At the same time, the product had a very low false positive rate, missing out on a platinum award by just a single email; a VBSpam Gold award is more than deserved.”

There was an increase in the number of products tested this month, and the benchmarks used for this test were stricter than in previous tests. To be the first virtual anti-spam solution tested in the Virus Bulletin anti-spam test and to come away with a gold award and a glowing recommendation is a testament to the quality of the SpamTitan anti-spam solution.
